Subject [users@httpd] What editor to edit config files with Windows XP?
Date Mon, 25 Apr 2005 15:18:16 GMT
I have Windows XP running Apache 2.0.54.

When I edit my hosts, httpd, and other files, I use notepad. When I save the
files, they become .txt files. Should I be using some other editor to
correctly save the files as other than .txt? I notice some things do not
work correctly and am thinking this may be the issue I am having?

Virtual hosts does not work although I have them set exactly as various
examples in Apache docs and elsewhere on the web. Also I can get to the
apache start page ok using but not using localhosts.

In my hosts file, I have " localhost" as the first line.

My virtual hosts are set up as follows:

#Use name-based virtual hosting.
NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
 DocumentRoot C:/www/Apache2/htdocs/dreammaster
 ServerAlias dreammaster
 ErrorLog logs/dreammaster.log

<VirtualHost *:80>
 DocumentRoot C:/www/Apache2/htdocs/owlnet
 ServerAlias owlnet
 ErrorLog logs/owlnet.log

Those are the correct paths to root documents, etc. yet virtual hosts does
not work in that I can not get to either using:

All tests for php, mysql, perl, etc work at test.

My main reason for installing apache is to have a test server to use for
building websites under Dreamweaver. IIS wasn't cutting it for me.

Thanks for any help.
